Charles Douglas Mahon Obituary
Charles Douglas "Doug" Mahon, 83, was freed from the constraints of this life, to join his Heavenly Father, on Nov. 18, 2015.  
Doug was the only son of Elmer Overton Mahon and Mary Mozelle (Newton) Mahon, born on June 24, 1932. His sister, Fairy Lynn (Mahon) Wright, wife of Max Wright, predeceased him this July, as well as baby sister Lucy.  
Surviving him were his niece, Maxie Lynn (Wright) Houser and husband Donald; nephew, Mark Daniel Wright and wife Dianna, and Jimmy Greag Wright and wife Cherry. Great nieces and nephews numbered six, but great-greats were many - Maxie's children, Channon C. Cain, wife Lauren and their children Chloe and Caroline, Meredith Cain Davila and husband Dax and their children Cain and Rocco; Mark's children, Deedra Lynn Wright and Aaron Joseph Wright, his wife Kendal and their children Noah, Carson, Corren, and Daphne; and Jimmy's children, Greg, his wife Christina and their children Ryan, Reagan, and Raef; and Nikki, her husband Jason and their children Madilyn, Kennedy, and Max.
Doug attended Highland High School south of Roscoe and was a longtime, faithful member of Champion Baptist Church, Roscoe. He spent his latter years in Snyder as a resident of Snyder Oaks Care Center, where he developed happy, genuine relationships with staff and residents alike. After a sudden illness Nov. 16, his friends there sent many warm wishes to him and his family. They will long be appreciated by Doug's family, who understand the sweet bond had by them all. From a long line of hardy Mahons, Doug also strongly held to integrity, moral standards and Christian values. He was honest in his expression. Delightfully, his wit was undaunted and his smile was quick. His interest in others, and his love for children and pets, spoke volumes about his unselfish and patient nature. He was content with whatever his circumstances in life. His unmatched recall of events, his fascination with history, and his love for baseball, especially the Chicago Cubs, were evidence of his interesting personality. Much beloved and admired as an outstanding friend, uncle, great uncle, and great-great uncle, his family and friends mourn his passing but celebrate his "Home Run."
Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 22, 2015 at Champion Baptist Church with Reverend Bruce Parsons officiating. Interment will follow at Loraine Cemetery. Family visitation will be Saturday from 5-6:30 p.m. at the funeral home.
Pallbearers will be Channon Cain, Greg Wright, Aaron Wright, Raef Wright, Randall Bankhead and Brad Thompson.
